How to Dance like Shakira

Learn how to dance like Shakira from professional dancer Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith in this Howcast dance video.


Buenos dias mi gente. We are going to learn how to dance like Shakira. She has so many different styles to her, but the one we most notice are the hips. Right? So we are going to learn one of her more recent movements. So we're not going to take the hips don't lie jammy. We're going to do one of her ones from "Loca" which was more recent for her.

So we're going to step to the side, bending the left leg slightly, and just perching this right leg either at your toe or on the ball of your foot. Okay. So this way you can sit nice and comfortably. We're going to focus on the hip. So the hip is going to go down and it's going to lock in the front. Take it backwards, down, lock in the back. We're going to do it one more time. Down, lock in the front. Let's try that again. So we have bending, step, one, two, three, four, five, six, almost there. Okay.

So now, she leans forward so that you can see this even more. Don't forget the (?) claw, she wolf claw. And hand in the hair. Or you could just place it, whatever, but we'll do it like this. So you got one, two, three, four, five, six. Now keep that hip up here. Don't let it drop. Keep it right here where you locked it because you're going to go down three times. Click, click, click. Okay.

Try that again. We did the last lock. Click, click, click. Good. So you go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight. Hold it back. One, connecting all of those. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight. One, you lock it right there.

Let's try that with music.

There you go and there you have it. Loca, loca, loca.
